The Plot of The Series Deadwind:
The storyline of the series embarks with a detective in Finnish police named Sofia Karppi, who is in her 30s. She has lost her husband recently and has two children with her. After the death of her husband, she takes a break from her work. After some time she returns to her work again in the Helsinki police as a homicide detective and receives her first case associated with the murder of Anna Bergdahl who was a social affair consultant.
Sakari Nurmi is another detective who gets transferred from the financial crime unit to the homicide unit and becomes the partner of Sofia in the unit. They receive routine disappearance as their initial case. They find Anna Bergdahl’s clothes at a construction site that leads them to the body of the victim. They find her body buried at a shore that belonged to wind power research firm Tempo with flowers in her hand. Anna’s husband after listening about her death gets confused about the incident. Then Sofia starts to investigate the case and uncover many different aspects.
This was all about the case with which Sofia is dealing in Season 1.
The story of Deadwind Season 2 starts with another case where a dead body of a blindfolded man is found who was frozen to death. One more dead body is found hanging by a bridge, which was also blindfolded. Sofia and Nurmi try to connect the two cases where they also find a tattoo over their body. Through their tattoos, they successfully find a ship named Malika. They also find another connecting link between the two murders by their occupation. Both the victims were working on a project associated with the Helsinki-Tallinn tunnel. This leads them to the shifts in the political sands of Helsinki.
The inspection picks up speed after the murder of Tapio and his daughter Kerttu. Before dying Tapio wanted to tell something to the detectives as his last words were “JIM”. This information proved very useful and took them to Jimi, who was also a worker on Meelika and also died suspiciously. Tapio was the person who signed on his death certificate.
The death of the doctor, who performed the autopsy of the dead body of Jimi, proved that the murders are done by a single person and all the murders are related to each other. Mayor Sara Tulisuo appeared to be the next target of the murderer as she was also present at the ship during the death of Jimi and left the crime scene in a hurry.
Sofia and Nurmi find out more things about Jimi and they discover that Jimi’s mother Mari Routa has left her child because she was not capable at that time to raise him but she hoped to reunite with him soon. After listening about his death, she returned to take revenge on the ones who had killed her son. For taking revenge, she found about Jann Lanest and Margud Magi, who were drug dealers and were forcing Jimi to work with them when he was denying. After that, she found the police officer, the doctor, and the politician who didn’t help her that time. It was Mari Routa who was killing the people recklessly one by one.
Later it was revealed that Jimi’s father misidentified his body. The dead body was not of Jimi but of some random guy who accidentally drowned in the sea. The tattoo that Jimi had on his chest was not present on the dead body and this important mark got unnoticed by his father. Jimi was alive and his girlfriend hid him. He then got reunited with his father.
Routa attacks Sofia but after knowing the truth she felt very guilty. She became so disappointed with herself that she killed herself without revealing the truth that she was not the one who killed Tapio and Kerttu.
Who killed Tapio and Kerttu then? This can only be answered after watching the series Deadwind Season 2.
